Global Distributed Antenna Systems Market - Segmented by Type (Active, Passive, Digital), Application (Enterprise DAS, Public Safety DAS), End-user (Telecommunication, Healthcare, Manufacturing), and Region - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)
The Distributed Antenna Systems market was valued at USD 7.81 billion in 2017 and is estimated to reach a value of USD 11.74 billion by 2023 at a CAGR of 6.8%, over the forecast period (2018 - 2023).
Distributed Antenna Systems have helped industries overcome a lot of shortcomings when it comes to internet connectivity and high bandwidth, leading to a widespread adoption across various other regions and industries as well. One of the major factors for the penetration of DAS has been the increasing demand of high speed connectivity everywhere as IoT adoption increases. As the technology has proved to be cost effective when compared to its counter-parts, even various governments across the globe have been proactively deploying this antenna system.
Increasing demand for better coverage everywhere
The Internet has evolved exponentially in the past decade, especially the past few years, and so has mobile internet. Every upgrade in the telecommunication technology, be it 3G or LTE, has provided higher speeds for mobile internet users. But this has come at the expense of connectivity. Every higher technology operates in higher frequency bands which gives higher speed but compromises on connectivity. To counter this, the telecom vendors had to deploy more cell sites and the bandwidth also reduces when the number of users increase. This is where Distributed Antenna System comes to the picture and caters to both the issues. It can be deployed in densely populated areas, like malls and provide high bandwidth without the need to install micro or small cells. It has an edge over the small cells on a number of aspects, like it can accommodate multiple telecom vendors without the need to add on to the infrastructure.
The market has a strong position in the North American market with major players, like Corning Incorporated and American Towers Corporation IP LLC having their majority of the revenue from this region. The technology has its own pros and cons but when it comes to high bandwidth with cost efficiency, the technology suits in most of the situations. After North America, Asia-Pacific is one the regions where DAS deployment has been increasing in the recent past. If we take the Indian market, which is one of the major contributors to the market, internet penetration has been on the rise with the telecommunications technology upgrades in the recent past. Even the government had intervened to make sure that the telecommunication operators share DAS owned by them so that the customers of all operators can have the threshold bandwidth everywhere and these new technologies have wider adoption in the region. State governments in the region have also been promoting the adoption of DAS in various industries. For instance, the state government of various countries decided to implement DAS in the hospitals which have at-least 100 beds and malls which cover the minimum area of 25,000 sq. ft. This clearly indicates the governments’ intention to make the high bandwidth technologies successful with its direct impact on the DAS market.
